WW2M 1 They Looked for a City

By Buksbazen, Lydia

A True Story of World War I and II

WWII Memorial Series 1

They Looked for a City is the saga of a Hebrew Christian family tossed by all kinds of national and personal storms, yet always emerging on the crest of each menacing wave, as if carried by the hand of a merciful God and the force of their faith. It is a pilgrim story of real people whose lives were marked by a two-fold stigma and a two-fold privilege — that of being Jews as well as believers in the Messiah of Israel, Jesus.

The center of this family chronicle is occupied by my beloved mother Yente, because to me she personifies something that is so precious and peculiar — the heart of a Jewish mother, and the impact of her faith upon her family and all those who came in touch with her.
